    "Seeking God's Face?" Not sure if I know all it involves

    God's face is Jesus. That's the long and the short of it. This will probably be dismissed because Jesus is sort of seen as a piece of candy which you suck for a while, get a fix and then go on because he's not considered the main meal. Problem is, not having an idea what the main meal looks...

    prediction does not equal causation!

    Are we saved by certainty, or by faith? - the mystery of salvation

    You choose to see through a lens which lacks Jesus. As a result distortions of God's character will always muddy the perception.

    Are we saved by certainty, or by faith? - the mystery of salvation

    God's M.O. has never altered. His attitude towards all his creation throughout eternity is one of unending care and kindness.

    Are we saved by certainty, or by faith? - the mystery of salvation

    As an example, our Sun can only be seen at a distance.....and even that with great difficulty when looking directly at it. God's Glory is his self sacrificing love; its brightness a consuming fire.

    Are we saved by certainty, or by faith? - the mystery of salvation

    The Good News is a past and present continuous reality which is held in our earthen vessels by believing it......till the physical reality becomes our experience at the second coming.....when mortality puts on immortality and this corruptible puts on incorruption. This has been the great hope...

    Are we saved by certainty, or by faith? - the mystery of salvation

    I would say Salvation came SteVen before the foundation of the World. I wonder what 'Salvation before the foundation of the World means'? It means that God's tenderness, his Grace, his Mercy, his Loving Kindness have always existed, it is past present continuous and has never changed......ever...

    Are we saved by certainty, or by faith? - the mystery of salvation

    Are we saved by certainty, or by faith? - the mystery of salvation We are saved by Jesus. Why gravitate to the subjective and make it the primary criteria? ie certainty or faith Faith is the hand which grasps the certainty of Salvation but Salvation is there even before we are born.

    Let's see if we can agree on something and build from there? Would you agree that being born again is something happening to you ie, it's a subjective experience?

    T U L I P explained

    Let me ask this, is Jesus a tool to get what we want, ie, being born again, or is Jesus the main event? I would say that being 'transformed by the renewing of ones mind' is seeing Jesus as the main event and believing it, and being born again is the fruit of seeing this.

    What did Jesus die to save us from?

    All humanity has been restored IN JESUS.....especially those who believe. This restoration of all people is God's Glory....it is unprecedented.....unheard of Many/ most don't care for this restoration, they even despise and twist it and misrepresent it by making it conditional upon something...

    Born again is about you/ the individual. Don't miss Jesus in all the 'born again' yada yada Rj.....because it's highly possible!

    Is The Chosen biblically accurate?

    We can pull the history of Jesus apart as clinically and sterile as one might pull the anatomy of a hand apart to discover its parts but totally miss the loving caress it is capable of. The Story of Jesus is one of Salvation with a capital S. It is about God's emotional and compassionate ties...

    Is The Chosen biblically accurate?

    Perhaps you could point out to us all your faults and errors instead of those of others?
